I started supporting men in 2008 when I worked as a self-employed mobile car and truck tyre fitter. I ran groups for men in the evenings and a monthly fire in the woods for men and boys. I sustained an injury and was unable to continue with my business. This supported my decision for a career change. Keeping up with the groups and now one-to-one coaching, I went to work for a local authority helping police, social services and members of the public from within the domestic abuse prevention team.
I am a graduate of The Embodied Facilitator Course (2017) and I am now Room Manager for this international embodiment training. I have trained in Embodied yoga Principles for coaches and use these principles in my work. I was part of the organising team of The Embodiment Conference 2020 and I presented at the inaugural Online Men’s Gathering 2021 on Embodying Masculine Archetypes.
Lockdown in 2020 saw a refining of my purpose with me leaving the local authority and moving 250 miles south to live with my partner Karin. I am now hosting and facilitating online embodiment groups, in Menswork and storytelling. I’m also working with other Menswork leaders and embodiment facilitators delivering workshops and I offer one to one coaching sessions (in person and via Zoom).
I enjoy being outdoors, fire, slingshot practice and spending time with my granddaughter.
